Event description

Description

Join Community Scholars in Affordable Housing alumni, friends and colleagues for a casual networking event to meet Community Scholars in Affordable Housing staff and alumni. Find out how the Community Scholar program can advance your career and the issues you are passionate about.

WHAT IS A COMMUNITY SCHOLAR? Community Scholars are emerging leaders who learn and use knowledge of best practices in community development and affordable housing to develop new solutions.

WHAT IS THE COMMUNITY SCHOLARS PROGRAM? Community Scholars in Affordable Housing is a collaboration between the University of Miami Office of Civic and Community Engagement, the South Florida Community Development Coalition, and Catalyst Miami. The innovative leadership development program provides training, support and networking for young local leaders to address Miami’s significant housing needs.

HOW DO I JOIN COMMUNITY SCHOLARS? Community Scholars are selected in a competitive application process. Applications will be available in October. Attend the Community Scholars Information & Networking Event on Thursday, October 11th from 6:00pm – 7:30pm at Venture Café, in the Deering Room, to learn more about the program and sign up for our mailing list. If you cannot join us, please email civicengagement@miami.edu and ask to be placed on the Community Scholars email list.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT COMMUNITY SCHOLARS! Since its creation in 2013, Community Scholars has trained 49 emerging professionals working in non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors. Participants have the opportunity to engage with local and national experts to explore techniques and concepts in the development of affordable housing, including critical issues facing South Florida such as funding, design, special needs populations, home ownership, advocacy, markets, and engaging stakeholders. Through collaborating with a select cohort of peers, participants acquire skills and build networks that will lead to enhanced opportunities in the field of affordable housing and community development.

This program is funded by JPMorgan Chase & Co.
